How Margot Robbie fakes her way to voluminous, thick hair.

Want to read this later? Pin it here.

Margot Robbie is a strong contender for top spot on the world’s podium of “ultimate golden girls”.

It’s due to a lot of things: her talent, of course, her down-to-earth sense of humour, and her fantastic sense of style—the most noticeable feature of which is her effortlessly silky, luscious hair.

Except—good news for your impending genetics envy—it’s not effortless at all.

In a interview with GlamorRobbie describes her hair as “fine, boring [and] actually totally shit.”

Put aside your cynicism; she actually has some great advice on faking more volume.

Margot Robbie’s three swear-by “thick hair” products:

Oribe texturizing spray: An invisible hair spray that adds volume to your hair (invisibly).

Klorane dry shampoo, $14.99: A standard, drugstore dry shampoo perfect for blondes wanting to conceal three-day-unwashed hair and subsequent dark roots.

Goa haircare: A magic conditioning product from Thailand that Robbie says is “literally the only thing keeping my hair on my head”. (Post continues after gallery.)

But let’s be real. The Aussie born, UK-based star also gets a little extra help, in the form of her “Glam Squad”.

Do you have one of those? Yeah, neither do I. But they’re not doing anything revolutionary to Robbie’s mop. In fact, you could probably try it at home.

In her own words:

“Readers are being so misleadEvery time I go to an event they have like clip in hair extensions to thicken it up, not necessarily for length but just to thicken it up to make it look fuller than it is. So it’s not me, it’s a magical hair stylist making it look good. The glam squad!”

There you go. “Hair extensions” by no means implies the Snooki length horse-hair you’ve come to associate them with.

You can get subtle, short, tape-in hair extensions for as little $40, to plump out your soon-to-be mane just like Robbie for your next big event.
